Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo SA (PGNiG SA) and Operator Gazociągów Przesyłowych GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. announce that on March 6th 2015 Gazprom confirmed that gas supplies to Poland from across its eastern border would be delivered in volumes requested.
WARSAW, 10-3-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — PGNiG received a confirmation that natural gas supplies from its eastern supplier would be consistent with the orders placed by the Company. Yesterday, a substantial increase in natural gas flow was recorded at entry points to the Polish transmission system. Natural gas volumes delivered in the last 24 hours were slightly below the amounts ordered, but today imports proceeded as planned.
The average daily demand for gas in recent days has reached approx. 47 million cubic metres. At present, the amount of gas held in underground storage is ca. 1.3 billion cubic metres. The gas network is operating without any disruptions.
If the situation concerning gas supplies to Poland from across its eastern border changes, another announcement will be released.
In the period from early September 2014 to March 5th 2015, gas supplies from the eastern direction were inconsistent with orders placed by PGNiG, with daily volumes from 6% to 46% below the nomination. The shortfalls were offset by higher imports from countries west and south of Poland, domestic production and gas retrieved from underground storage facilities. The lower gas imports posed no threat to the security of the Polish gas system. All end users in Poland were receiving amounts of gas sufficient to cover their requirements.
